Emeli Sandé Announces New Album “How Were We To Know”, Premieres New Song “There For You” on BBC Radio 2
Scottish singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé has announced her fifth studio album “How Were We To Know” will be released on November 17, 2023.
The album comprises 11-track and explores intimate encounters with love in all its forms, along with the risks required to pursue it.
Its rich, relatable spectrum of emotions spans heartbreak, grief and joy, with ruminations upon mourning a relationship that broke down through to the blissful, heady rush of a love that's just beginning to bloom.
Emeli Sandé said of the album, “Once you've been hurt, it's very hard to pick up the pieces again and allow yourself to be vulnerable. So I think these songs explore the bravery of love, and loving others but also yourself. These songs were pieces of a puzzle I had to put together, and now feels like the right time to share them. These are tales from a hopeless romantic. I'm very romantic, and it gets me in trouble sometimes!”
- From the album, she premiered the first single called “There For You” on BBC Radio 2 The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show.
The track was written by Emeli Sandé and Daniel Caruana. Produced by Emeli Sandé, Daniel MacKenzie and Shaquille Tevin Douglas.
The accompanying music video was directed by Tom Stoddart.
She said of the song, “'There For You' is about how I'll always have love for the people I've been with. Even if I'm pissed off with them for a couple of years, I'll always care for them, I'll always want to know they're OK. Because once you've committed to that love with someone, it doesn't just go away.”
